It's college application time again and high school seniors are starting to wonder where they'll be admitted in the spring. There's an API that can help them, or their parents (depending who's a better coder), get more insight into their chances.
U.S. National Library of Medicine, which is part of the National Institutes of Health, maintains a database of over 8,500 records relating to other organizations and sources of reference material on the topic of health and medicine. This “Directory of Information Resources Online” is aptly named DIRLINE. The DIRLINE API allows you to search this niche data collection from your webpage or app.
Our directory lists 216 mashups under the real estate category. While these mashups provide their own take on browsing and evaluating real estate listings, several of them lack critical school data, which is an important part of a family's housing decision. Education.com plans to change all of that via its API.
